Earlier this year, on the day a 14-year-old girl jumped from a Casper bridge into the North Platte River, Dan Dundas wasn’t on patrol. And Craig Kidder was off duty.
Dundas, a police officer, was working with the city’s Weed and Seed program in north Casper. His job entailed, among other things, getting into the community, meeting people, identifying problems.
Kidder, a firefighter, was finishing coaching a Little League baseball team. He left practice driving to his 8-year-old son’s last soccer game of the season.
